Bue Single Bend Table Brush by Poppy Lawman
This product is currently sold out.
The Bue (Arc) series are part sculpture and part utilitarian, made to be enjoyed in and out of use; dancing the line of art and design for a slower, more connective way of living. Sculptural flowing, fluid forms of raw oak bend and fold through the technique of traditional steam bending, connecting us to a time old handcraft. Where once heated, the wood is malleable and supple ready to be formed by hand and take on shape. The Bue Brush series are a collection of table and dust brushes.
The Bue Brushes are made from steam bent oak from well managed forests that responsibly take care of forest harvesting and replenishment. They are made entirely from biodegradable materials of oak, coconut fibers, linen thread, linseed oil and soy wax.
Poppy Lawman is a designer based in Oslo, Norway, where she focuses on making thoughtful slow designs and objects whose goal is to connect one to their surroundings and endeavour to promote living in the moment.
Oak, Linseed oil, Linen, Soy wax, Coco fibers.

END OF LIFE
If treated with good care the brush is a very durable product. The fibres are made to last for many years and the wood itself of course too. As it is crafted of all natural products only the brush is biodegradable.
THOUGHTS BEHIND THE PRODUCT
Using a brush to swipe a surface and make it perfectly neat is a very mindful and meditative practice. There are many aspects to consider when cleaning. One is using an inspiring product, a product that you love to work with. It makes the act of cleaning more pleasant and fulfilling. The Bue (Arc) series by Poppy Lawman is a truly extraordinary concept. There are so many aspects to this beautiful work. The table and dust brushes are made carefully, resembling fluid forms and nature. We are astonished by the gentle qualities to it and have never came across any brush like this. At all times when its functional purpose is not needed it is just a wonderful piece of craft, art, design.
